Of Ethics and Tennis balls


This post will feature a little of this and a little of that. First a friendly FYI that we are continually adding pictures to the (aptly named) Pictures section.

Kentaros talk on Thursday, at the *iHub_ about why it is so hard to get rich and help the poor at the same time, was very insightful and we wish him the best for his continued travels in Africa. It gave some perspective on what role a service such as iDoc24 could or should play in Africa. According to Kentaro, it seems as if good ethics and sustainability has a lot in common, however, this does not imply good business, probably mediocre business at best, otherwise it would be taking money from the poor and that is not fair. Kentaro’s point is that one should aim for one goal, not two. Does this mean that iDoc24 is not for the poor? Not at all! In our opinion the service is flexible enough to be adapted to several different kinds of markets. One might even venture to say that that is essentially what we are doing here. It is essentially about keeping in mind what is development and what is business when expanding the service.

On a more comical but unfortunate note, Chris managed to hit a tennis ball in the most unlikely curved trajectory since the dawn of physics. It flew straight into the tennis managers office and hit his laptops screen. Luckily it would seem the insurance (Love you Kammarkollegiet!) will cover it. We’ve also found a good tennis trainer, Jack (in the picture), that helps us both not to spend so much time in front of our computers.

    Lol, lite coolt att tennisbollen ändå kunde få till det… Kräver ju en hel del skills! Fast också, vilken jäkla otur!

    • Vet inte om det kräver så mycket skills jag. Gäller bara att man är tillräckligt kass och har tillräcklig hybris för att slå till bollen hårt trots att man står helt fel så den flyger bortåt farstun.
